Diary of a City Priest
Edited by Father Dominic Allain
This book provides a selection of the best of the weekly ‘Pastor Iuventus’ columns from the Catholic Herald. Arranged over a year the columns give us a true-life picture of the ministry of a parish priest in a busy city. The diary convincingly conveys the tangible and day-to-day reality of a priest’s life: the high and lows, births and deaths, new challenges and amongst all these, the quiet presence of God.
The author writes about his life with candour and insight but also with humour and brilliance. Through the everyday life of the parish, the local hospital and the school, we are given an intimate portrait of real life. The reader will be moved and inspired by the beauty and depth of these weekly columns. As the year unfolds, the journal reminds us of the closeness of the Providence of God to every human life.
